NCIS: Hawai'i Fans Are Already Emotionally Preparing For Season 2 Episode 7

It can be frustrating when your favorite show takes a seemingly unnecessary break between episodes. So when "NCIS: Hawai'i" announced after its October 24 episode that the subsequent installment won't air until November 14, fans were a bit disappointed, to say the least.

The network may have decent reasons for waiting on the next new episode, given that October 31 is Halloween, and the following week, November 7, is the night before the midterm elections. But three whole weeks is too long to wait to find out what happens to our favorite characters — especially when a show (on CBS, no less) is finally doing something right with LGBTQ+ characters in television. After decades of poor representation, queerbaiting, and premature deaths for queer characters on television, "NCIS: Hawai'i" is the first spinoff to feature an LGBTQ+ character from the start (per TVLine). It offers one of the best LGBTQ+ romances on television, with the characters Lucy Tara (Yasmine Al-Bustami) and Kate Whistler (Tori Anderson). Many fans adore the coupling — including cast member Jason Antoon, who posts on Twitter about them often — and the 'Kacy' hashtag frequently trends online.

After a tumultuous on-off relationship built over Season 1 of "NCIS: Hawai'i," Season 2, Episode 5's "Sudden Death," saw the couple decide to move in together. Now, new production photos have got 'Kacy' fans excited for their next adventure, which might be a date on the beach — even though Lucy hates the ocean. And fans cannot wait.

'Kacy' fans don't want to wait for November 14

With the release of promo photos for "Vanishing Act," Season 2 Episode 7 of "NCIS: Hawai'i," fans are anxious for the new installment and disappointed to wait so long. "I need November 14 to hurry up," one fan tweeted, with photos of 'Kacy' — special agent Lucy Tara (Yasmine Al-Bustami) and FBI liaison Kate Whistler (Tori Anderson) — snuggling on the beach. "2.07 is going to be the death of me!!!!" said another. A third fan would really like to know what the couple is talking about at the beach as they sit on the beach with their arms intertwined. But enjoying the photos doesn't make the time fly faster, as another fan pointed out, with different pictures of Lucy and Kate.

Despite some general qualms over the show, fans enjoy the LGBTQ+ representation on "NCIS: Hawai'i." One fan tweeted, "The copaganda is so bad but Lucy Tara is a gift," referencing the October 24 episode. "I will always love a show that banks on making a queer character the heart and soul of a team like that."

Tori Anderson appreciates the responses from fans. "I really do believe that seeing queer characters and couples taking up the same space in airtime as heterosexual relationships is vitally important," she told TVLine. "Seeing the response has been astounding in a way that I didn't expect," she added. "It speaks to how imperative it is that this is represented."
